Caroline's home was perfect! Room and washroom were well stocked with amenities. Caroline and her young son are wonderful to share conversation with. Breakfast of eggs, sausage, toast, fruit and yogurt was fresh made and filling for a full morning of exploring the beautiful area…

Caroline and Peter are just the loveliest people. They have chickens (fresh eggs!) and apple trees and a gorgeous garden and Peter's amazing gin. But more than all of this, they are a pleasure to eat a meal with. I will be returning to stay with them whenever I'm able.

Wow! I loved staying with Caroline and Peter. They were amazing hosts, fed me an amazing breakfast and told me loads about place to see and things to do. It was a real treat getting to stay with them. I wish I had longer with them cause it was amazing!

Don't know where to begin. This was one of my favorite stays in six weeks of travel throughout Europe. Caroline and Peter, and their son Daniel, we're so gracious and generous and kind. The room was very well appointed and comfortable, in a nice quiet town in rural Cork. What rea…

Caroline and Peter went way beyond what was expected to make us feel welcome. In all honesty, this is the best airbnb we have ever been in!! They invited us to dinner the first night we arrived, fed us breakfast, made fresh scones one morning, let us use the washing machine... …

I had five wonderful nights with Caroline, Peter, and Daniel at their lovely home in Conna. After the long drive from Belfast, I was invited to join them for dinner and felt from the first that I was welcomed like an old family friend. The house is beautifully decorated and ver…

I reserved a room in Conna because it is my ancestors' birthplace. My experience was so very enhanced because of the lovely place and wonderful hosts. The house is a renovated blacksmith's forge full of beautiful antiques from Peter and Caroline's families. Being in a home wit…

Such a pleasure to meet someone whose family lived up the road in the 1850s - it truly is a small world, and Kathy was simply a delight to host - generous, kind, a font of information about the place we live in - you could not ask for a nicer guest and we do hope to meet Kathy (on either side of the pond) again!

Loving living in rural Cork with my husband Peter, toddler Daniel and 5 laying hens. We enjoy the good life, but without the hair shirt! We share a keen interest in the arts, food and drink and our family. Whilst almost no public transport in this part of the world unfortunately,…
